11:19 pm
san santa rosa, antioch and liver more in the 30s. blend of stars and clouds out there. 32 for santa rosa, 36 antioch, 34 concord. bigger story is fog developing even at this hour. live doppler 7 showing you the visibility in fairfield has dropped to a quarter mile. that's very dense fog, and the visibility is dropping right now in santa rosa. less than two miles. so patchy fog will be with us, dense in spots, first thing on your sunday. future weather of what you see on your screen, white shading, that is the fog, early in the morning, it's going to take some time to burn off. by 10, 11:00 in the morning, that's when the fog pulls away, and that will set the stage on a really nice afternoon on your sunday. a lot of sunshine and temperatures very similar to where we were today. three-day forecast, take a look. patchy fog early, then we'll go into the sunshine. temperatures in the 50s. monday, nice holiday sunshine from start to finish. but by tuesday, it will be mild,
11:20 pm
temperatures in the 60s inland. but the day of transition, from sunshine to cloud cover in the afternoon, and that's ahead of our next storm system moving in on wednesday. so the storm impact scale on wednesday, this will be a 2, a moderate system moving in, showers with scattered downpours mixed in, gusty wind. the threat of power outages gets renewed on wednesday with those winds. future weather will jump ahead to wednesday, 4:00 in the afternoon. much of the wet weather confined north of the golden gate. probably not until after sunset on wednesday, the showers will sink south, turning heavy at times. the heavier showers will bring the gusty winds with them. future wind gusts shows you the winds will pick up and by 10:00, winds gusting from 20 to 40 miles per hour, as you round out the day on wednesday. a wide range in numbers here with the mid week storm system. in the north bay, where the storm lingers the longest, the highest total. three-quarters to an inch and a
11:21 pm
half of rain, but i think that scenario is setting up where the south bay and any of our inland communities see very minimal rainfall out of the system. probably up to a quarter inch. wouldn't be surprised if some spots do not see measurable precip out of that storm. on the accuweather seven-day forecast, we will track more widespread rain on friday, but sunday, it's patchy fog to sunshine. a nice holiday on monday, late day clouds on tuesday. rain and wind on wednesday. scattered showers on thursday, and on friday, our next storm could bring heavy rain for everybody to round out the week. >> more heavy rain, drew, thank you. still ahead on abc7 news at 11:00, we haven't quite discovered everything on this
